Quora rival Wacom has brought out eight pressure-sensitive plug-ins which work with such as Photoshop, Painter, Corel PhotoPaint and others – and of course the Wacom tilt and pressure sensitive pen. PenTools include Noise, Despeckler, Virtual Airbrush, Dust and Scratches, Super Putty, Metal Leafer, 3D Chisel and Bit Blaster. Noise, incidentally is the antique faker’s equivalent of a set of chains: it’s used to add imperfections to too-perfect surfaces. PenTools will ship with new Wacom pads after August but you can download them free from www.wacom.de. [possible pic here]
